The Original Barn, a five-stall barn, was built over 70 years ago. Renovations were made to update the stalls while preserving the Windwood, Alabama history and charm of the original structure. The original barn now serves as an overflow barn and stalls are rented out for overnight horses. All stalls are equipped with automatic waters and rubber mats.

Construction of the Main Barn was completed in 2004; these stalls house International level Grand Prix horses and horses in training. Whether Windwood is home to your first horse or your Federation Equine International (FEI) horse, you will feel welcome and your horse will have a spacious 12×12 stall with all the conveniences of a state of the art facility.

The Show Barn recently underwent extensive renovations which were completed in December 2012. The renovations expanded the barn’s capacity to 24 stalls. Intricate detailing such as chandeliers, stall sconces, high velocity ceiling fans, updated wash stalls, and a solarium were added to increase the comfort for both horse and owner.

Our School Barn was built in 2008 and offers a casual and open feel that mirrors our Show Barn. This barn is the first stop for new riders at Windwood. The School Barn offers students the opportunity to learn the basics of horsemanship, riding, care and horse ownership. Our riding school students have the opportunity to advances to their own personal goals and potential.

Windwood Equestrian facilities offer a huge porch, which is the perfect place to view the main arena. The porch is the ideal spot to watch lessons, view the action on a show day or simply relax with a glass of iced tea after a ride.


Windwood’s individual turn-out paddocks are a key component to the health and care of our horses. Individual paddocks have a golf course caliber irrigation system and are carefully maintained to insure grass growth through a rotation schedule. The turn-out rotation schedule is orchestrated by the head trainers and proven to help maintain horst health and limit injuries. The horses are separated, but can see each other, keeping them safer and happier, too.
